I sincerely like the idea of putting the internal concepts back into Aikido, because I agree that they appear to have been there and are not so slowly being lost.
I am training with more of this internal focus in mind and will share/spread it when I know more.
I will also try to do it without insulting anyone or their instructors.
Yes, I have nothing but the utmost respect for my instructors. It was really nice to see one of them at the AikiWeb seminar. It also reminded me of just how much I missed that part of my life. I'm hoping to see more of him in the future.
